The auditory processing of linguistic (single-syllable common nouns) stimulation, presented dichotically, was investigated in a group of young (mean CA = 52 months) Down's Syndrome children and 2 groups of nonretarded children, matched on CA. The Down's Syndrome children showed a significant left ear advantage in processing this material, and the(More)
Research over the last 5 to 6 years has indicated quite clearly that Down's syndrome children are a distinct, somewhat delayed group of people, the delays being a result of both physical and cognitive problems.

A group of Down's syndrome children was tested on the Token Test for Children (Di Simoni, 1978), and their scores were compared with those of a group of retarded children with other conditions, matched on PPVT score and CA, and a group of non-retarded children, matched on PPVT score. It was found that the Down's syndrome children were significantly poorer(More)
A group of Down's syndrome (DS) children was tested on Part 5 of the Token Test for Children (TTC) and a dichotic listening test (DLT, digits), and their scores were compared with those of a group of retarded children with other conditions (non-DS), matched on PPVT score and CA. It was found that the DS children showed significantly more of a left ear(More)
